Dare 2B Artzy 2021 Favorites

Hi Artzy friends -
As we near the end of 2021, I thought I would revisit some of my favorite projects from the past year using Dare 2B Artzy stamps, dies, and papers released during the year, and a variety of fun folds as well!
It's difficult to narrow down because there have been so many fantastic new products to create with this year!

The first card I shared in 2021 was actually one of my favorites! The adorable bear and penguins from Just Chillin' are some of my favorite winter images! And I love the papers in the Snow Much Fun collection! 

This Turtley Awesome card made the list because I think this turtle eating ice cream is just so fun! 

Early 2021 found many of us receiving our Covid vaccines and looking forward to seeing and hugging our friends again. This cute card features bears from Bear Hugs, and beautiful colorful papers from the Ice Cream Social collection. Slimline dies, such as these from the Wavy Slimline Framelits dies were very popular in 2021 as well!

At Dare 2B Artzy, we love to get a jumpstart on Christmas cards in July, and this card was created to get us thinking about winter, 6 months ago! I just love the Slimline Snowflake dies cut out of silver glittery cardstock! Such a simple card but it makes a big impact!

The most recent Dare 2B Artzy release included so many beautiful images and papers that can be used for holiday cards and all year round. 
Two of my favorite cards made with products from the release include one made with the Pop Up Feature die, and a slimline card. Both feature papers from the Merry and Bright collection, which may just be my favorite Dare 2B Artzy papers to date (although I'm sure I say that every time new a new paper collection is released!)

I hope you enjoyed taking a look back at Dare 2B Artzy products and projects from the past year with me.
And I hope you are looking forward to getting Artzy with some fantastic new products to come in 2022! I know I am!

Hello My Crafty Friend Shaker

 Hi crafty friends -

Today I am sharing an edge to edge shaker card, in mini slim size, featuring a Kat Scrappiness word die set.

Edge to edge, or full front shaker cards are an easy way to make shaker cards, with no foam tape, and using any clear packaging you may have saved from stamps, dies, etc. 

The only products and supplies I used for this card are patterned paper, cut with one of these dies, sequins, this die set, and of course - adhesives and cardstock. 

You can find lots of word dies, many with shadows, and mini slimline dies, in the Kat Scrappiness store.

Yeti for Christmas!

 Hi Artzy friends -

December is here and so are the snowflakes and the holiday season!

Today I am sharing a mini slimline card that would be perfect to send to your friends to get them in the mood for a white Christmas!

This tangled-up-in-lights yeti is from the Yeti 4 Winter stamps and dies set. The icy blue trees are from the Deck the Halls and Joy to the World stamps and dies sets. 

I cut a curvy edge onto a panel of snowy background paper from the North Pole Holidays paper collection with a die from the Wavy Slimline Borders. I then adhered it onto a strip of whit cardstock and cut my background with the largest die from the Slim Mini Wavy Layers dies, creating a dotted edge all around my card front. 

I then stamped Merry Christmas with a stamp from the Toboggan Fun stamp set, and adhered my card front onto a mini slimline size card base. I added my yeti and trees to complete this wintery holiday card.

Our monthly challenge for November is all about tags and bookmarks. Link up your creations here for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the Dare 2B Artzy store.

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
